Welcome to the Blood-Red Pencil blog, readers. How's the year going for you so far?
We have exciting news from Kathryn Craft this month about her new book, which she's been blogging about here, and it ties right into one of our new monthly features: Cover Reveal!
Good cover art is so important to the success of your book, and you've probably noticed with e-books that a bad cover can sometimes keep you from buying, or even downloading a free book. I know I'm that way. But it's a lot easier to "re-cover" from a bad art choice with e-books than with a print version, and long-time BRP blogger, Helen Ginger, will share her before and after re-covery of Angel Sometimes later in the month. (I think that joke now qualifies as a "darling", don't you? Let's kill it and hope it never recovers.)
I've kept my eyes open for good book cover artists over the past few years, and have noticed someone lately who makes a good impression on me. He just happens to be Morgan Mandel's cover artist, and she'll interview him this month. Here's her book cover from the latest title.
Please join us each and every day for lots more about writing, editing, designing, publishing, and promoting books! If you're visiting the blog for the first time, do say hello in the comments and give us your book title.
